Stapely’s £100k ap­peal

The Jewish Chronicle - - Community - BY JONATHAN KALMUS

LIVER­POOL’S JEWISH care home is ap­peal­ing for £100,000 to fund a des­per­ately needed re­fur­bish­ment to its Vic­to­rian premises.

Stapely man­age­ment has been told by the Care Qual­ity Com­mis­sion to start es­sen­tial work on leak­ing roofs and wa­ter dam­age.

Re­pairs had been put off and rooms closed in an­tic­i­pa­tion of a re­lo­ca­tion deal, which fell through in 2009. This would have seen a £4 mil­lion care home built at the back of the nearby Child­wall Synagogue.

Now the care home watch­dog — which pre­vi­ously awarded Stapely its sec­ond-high­est rat­ing — has warned that re­pairs to the 66-bed home can­not be de­layed fur­ther.

Around £10,000 is needed for im­me­di­ate re-roof­ing and the home’s man­age­ment says new car­pets, fur­ni­ture and up­dated nurs­ing beds are also re­quired.
